As human beings, you would think we would recognize that everyone deserves the right to health care, regardless of their ability to pay - it is a human right. But because the world revolves around money, then yes, we need to spell it out by amending the constitution. It doesn't say much for our society, sadly.
I believe the right to health care should be enumerated by an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I think that everyone should have health care and that it will make everyone who did not have it a lot more healthy the spread of disease will be less because of it and people will live longer.
I believe the right to health care should be enumerated by an amendment to the US Constitution. I can not believe there are people in this world who don't want me to be able to see a doctor. And I say me because I still can't afford health care like I should have access to. I can't afford the premiums of health care and my state did not expand Medicaid. It burns me to know end to think that people are as cruel as they are.
While access to health care for everyone is a nice sounding goal, it is absurd to call it a "right". Think about the things listed in the Constitution that we call "rights". Speech, assembly, religion, possession of firearms etc. These are all things that in a natural state, free of government, we are able to engage it. The Constitution does not GIVE us these rights- it prevents the government from infringing on these rights. Health care does not fall into that same category. It involves resources and time. It is something that must be given- not something that we need to prevent from being taken away. To say that one has a "right" to health care would be to say that a person would be justified in holding a gun to a doctor's head and forcing them to provide health care. After all their just exercising their "right" to health care.
